HS Team Rankings and State Report
Willie Saylor, Editor
There were twenty-two championships of one nature or another (state, duals, preps, etc) held last weekend.

In Bethlehem, Pa - Blair once again dominated National Preps. Despite missing 2x Prep Finalist, Dylan Milonas, the Bucs still outpointed Wyoming Seminary 324.5 to 236. Impressive, considering Wyoming Seminary damn good.

In Illinois - Carl Sandburg ran the gauntlet that was the 3A dual tournament, beating OPRF, Glenbard North and Marmion.

In Oklahoma, Edmond North snapped Broken Arrow's three-year stranglehold on the large school title, 125.5 to 98.5. Collinsville won 5A with five individual champs. Other team champions were Tuttle (4A) and Perry (3A).

Without a marquee team headlining the state, it's been a rather quiet year for Wisconsin. But the quality of wrestling there, on an individual level, is still among the best. Winning tournament titles last weekend were Wasau West, Luxemburg-Casco, and Lancaster.

Colorado winners were Pomona (5A), Broomfield (4A), Alamosa (3A) and Paonia (2A).

David Douglas won Oregon's big school class. Other winners were Hermiston (5A), Crook County (4A), Glide (3A), and Lowell (2A/1A).

They held state duals in Michigan where #2-St. Johns cruised to a D2 title over Lowell, 42-20. D3 went to Dundee, and Hudson won D4.

The largest division in Michigan gave us familiar foes and high drama. Davison and Detroit Catholic Central faced each other for the third time this season.

Check out this situation...

Final bout of the dual, Davison up by 3, Davison wrestler up 9-2.

Must watch.

On Tap This Weekend:

A couple biggies this weekend with Ohio, Minnesota, and Cali on the docket. All three should feature intriguing team races. Although Cali has seen Bakersfield and Clovis have some close ones lately, and Poway should push Clovis this year, Ohio and Minnesota big schools haven't been this interesting in quite a while. St. Edwards leads a pack that should include Perry and Moeller in Ohio. And in Minnesota, Apple Valley will head to state as an underdog for the first time in years, behind favorite, St. Michael Albertville. The same goes for MN's Class 2A where perennial powerhouse Simley is looking up at Kasson-Mantorville.
